    I've read all of the books in the series.I found this one slightly different to the others. This author has the knack of honest writing, I can believe in D S Pritchard. If there was such a word as unputdownable it would apply to this book. I've read all of the books in the series.I found this one slightly different to the others.

    The further adventures of Nostrils. This book had a slightly different feel to it. Although not my favourite story in the series but I could not put it down. Like the rest of the series it left me looking forward to reading the next one. Bring it on soon please Mr Cox

    Nostrils is a good man... read and find out why. Book 6... well I’m amazed, I’ve flown through them. Each one is better than the last, and the main characters are fully likeable and consistent with their past, to often you find an author has forgotten some of their own invented back story. This one delves into the murky world of finance, I just hope in book 7 Eggshells is caught. Don’t ask... read them.

    Spellbinding I have now read all 6 books. I never thought this was going the way it did. This one was different but enjoyed reading it as much as the others. His books keep you guessing and reading. Will there be a 7th?

    Gripping from beginning to end Absolutely gutted I've read the whole series what am I going to read now? Loved the fact they take you through every adventure from the perspective of someone who is totally naive and wet behind the ears to a fully competent DI. Highly recommend Gripping from beginning to end Absolutely gutted I've read the whole series what am I going to read now?
